This thesis has examined physical therapists’ (PTs’) beliefs about successful patient outcomes (SPO). Literature on PTs’ beliefs about SPO is extremely limited and outcomes are not clearly defined. The purpose of this research was to obtain a deeper understanding of PTs’ beliefs about SPO by asking: 1) what are PTs’ beliefs about factors that facilitate SPOs; 2) what are PTs’ beliefs about factors that interfere with SPOs; and 3) what factors influenced the formation of PTs’...

Although the k statistic has been used widely as an indicator of rater agreement, there have been some concerns about the existence of different definitions and some peculiar results involving skewed data. This note evaluates different definitions of k and also demonstrates that the problem with directly comparing k values, especially for skewed data, can be avoided by comparing their significance.

Computationally processing inference is one of the major outstanding problem, and virtually all existing approaches are very expensive. Even a special case of identifying “inferrable” referents is no exception. Among other applications including anaphora resolution, inferrables play an important role in identifying “information structure,” organization of sentence components based on informativeness. Thus, some kind of inference process would greatly affect the intricate problem of...

Coordination of unlike categories, e.g., at the complement position of predicative be, has been a problem for grammar formalisms and NLP systems. Unlike all previous approaches, this paper challenges the very assumption that such coordination is of unlike categories, by introducing a new category that covers certain NPs, AdjP, etc., on the semantic ground. The paper argues that such a move does not introduce new problems; all the problems discussed in the paper must be dealt with by traditional...

The essence of this essay can be captured in the following quote from Harrison's book: “Can education shift from its current model of shaping children into components of economic production, into an active experiment in optimizing the creativity of the whole child?” In contrast to the selling mode of education, this essay echoes past progressive educators’ message in some specific way and introduces a new metaphor of education (from the educator’s view point) as a “buying” process.

While attachment is crucial in attachment theory, non -attachment is valued in Buddhism. Is there any contradiction between these two? For example, would it be absurd to pursue both attachment and non-attachment, as can be seen in the practice of mindful parenting? Since both attachment theory and Buddhism explore the essence of well-being, it would be useful to identify the connection between them. This essay discusses relevant notions and points out that there is no contradiction between...

How many of us are fully making sense of our lives? Ava’s Bedside introduces a fable in which a dying hippo struggles with this question. Through conversation with other hippos, she finally realizes what is missing from her life. This book also contains a detailed commentary on the fable. The commentary discusses the importance of secure child-parent attachment for a meaningful life, referring to ideas in attachment theory.
